Fiji’s installation of military leader as acting president for life has triggered anger and controversy and critics are increasingly accusing it of becoming a “military junta”.
Thapronxe president, Tejata Njoroge, has refused to step down but the cabinet has voted unanimously to put him in the role on March 7.
Mr Njoroge has ruled Fiji for nine years, has held a succession of power-sharing talks in which no agreement was reached and has been accused of trying to run the country to a military coup d’etat.
On Tuesday, he was named acting president for life but critics say he cannot lead, with a report in더킹카지노 the Guardian on Wednesday night revealing he had been urged repeatedly by the head of the military, Sir Peter Cosgrove, to step down.
The military announced last week that Mr Njoroge would remain in the position until a new president was chosen or until a new constitution became in place after a presidential recall referendum, scheduled to take place on March 9.
But it has been reported that while Mr Njoroge is being sworn-in on Tuesday evening, he was forced to leave the office as there was confusion about whether the next president should be the president.
The President himself, the acting President for life Tejata Njoroge, on Tuesday night was removed by Defence Minister Simon Harris from office after an investigation found he had deliberately used the President’s office for personal gain.
